We were lucky enough to get an invitation to a family wedding in Buenos Aires (our son-in-law’s sister married an Argentinian) and we took the opportunity to make a six-week visit. We took in the amazing Iguazu Falls, Jesuit missions near San Ignacio, the wetlands at Esteros del Ibera in the north, then flew west to Mendoza where we did some wine tours and visited the Aconcagua viewpoint in the Andes. We were then back soaking u the atmosphere in Buenos Aires for a week before the wedding. All of these were fantastic experiences, but a bit outside the normal territory of the blog.
The second part of our trip was to fly to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, then travel to Puerto Natales in Chile by bus. Here we had two outdoor adventures planned: trekking the “W” Circuit in Torres del Paine National Park, then kayaking down the Grey and Serrano Rivers.
I’ll take a separate photo blog for each of these adventures, then yet another for our treks around El Chalten in Glaciares National Park in Argentina
